Pledge Now Congress and America

MG Paul E. Vallely, US Army (Ret.)

By Paul E. Vallely

Congress, you along with the Courts and the Executive Branch, are continuing down the path of destroying America. Our Constitution and the Articles therein do not provide for National Suicide.

Enough is Enough…!

National Call to Action

WE are broke as a country with $16 trillion dollars in debt and a gigantic, bloated government and bureaucracy. Our research reflects that the Federal Government can be downsized by at least 47% and American citizens would not miss any of it the next day.

Our government appears more each day to be reflective of a third world country in terms of ineptness, corruption, and dysfunction. This state of the union is spread across all branches and levels of government. As one noted historian said to me, the country is so encumbered today and so very similar to the Fall of the Roman Empire. America as we have known it for several hundred years may, in fact, be near a collapse.

You see, we need our elected and appointed political leaders to represent us, the People, and abide by, and protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I would further suggest to the American people that Congress’s first order of business is to start eliminating and downsizing government organizations and budgets. As well, start eliminating Federal Legislation that violates our Constitution and the “Sovereignty” of our States and Local authorities.

Go to work to reduce government and spending NOW! Disallow all lobbyists and special interests groups. You work only for the People, no one else! We need term limits on elected officials more now than ever. We need resignations of all those that are corrupt and inept.

My request would be to Senators and Congressmen; stay in your States that you represent nine out of twelve months of the year and spend no more than three months out of the year doing the people’s business in Washington. Make use of the electronic age.

Three months out of the year will provide you sufficient time to legislate and vote on measures and issues with this thought in mind; “you could be a greater asset to the country, to whom you represent and to the country to stay away from the addiction of Washington and the belief that you need to legislate as a lifeblood to your elected office.” It would be very appealing to all of us at the Federal and State level, if you would start to deregulate and de-legislate many of the laws and regulations that are unnecessary to run our government efficiently and productively for future generations.

This is a National Call to Action and it must begin now. The Declaration of Independence states:

“To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

“I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” From the Poem Invictus by English poet William Ernest Henley (1849–1903) that was penned in 1875. Yes, America, WE are the Masters of our Fate and the Captains of our Soul. We are watching while Washington burns and self-destructs before our very eyes but now, hopefully you are starting to awaken.

The majority of the country and its citizens are seeing the light of our inept and incompetent leadership In Washington! The waste, the personal agendas, the quest for power, and the massive numbers of regulations crushing our economy and way of life must be stopped, now.

The battle is on and we shall not retreat. All of us, please make a commitment this 4th July, Independence Day, we Stand Up as one and save our country. Take it back!

We are not going to permit the current leaders in the White House and in the Halls of Congress to continue in their efforts to lead us down the road of Progressive Socialism and the destruction of our Republic. The Patriotic Revolution that I forecasted well over a year ago is happening now. We Constitutionalists face a battle that is unknown to our newer generations so we must be aggressive in our collective efforts to continue to change the tide.

The Fate of the country is now in our hands and the plea from the majority of our citizens is to enforce the Constitution, severely limit the Federal Government and it’s out of control spending. There is a growing list of documented violations of the Constitution and their Oath of Office by current elected and appointed government officials. Corruptness, dishonestly and treasonous events and actions are occurring before our eyes.

Lincoln issued this warning in his inaugural address:

“Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one. This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world.”

Being a representative republic, not a simple democracy, “rising up” means other than revolution by force of arms, it means the use of our collective voice, and peaceful action.

The people must “rise up” (Stand Up) from the grass roots across this great country as we think of the greater good of this and future generations. We are limited in the peaceful transfer of power…resignation, elections, and impeachment. That is why the Patriotic Revolution must take place to ensure survival of the Union.

The oath is simple and reads:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Sadly, we have seen them violate their oath. Fraud, lying, and corruption are rampant and some have engaged in treasonous activities, and they effectively thumb their noses at us and have sold you to the highest bidder.

The Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution, which granted the federal government enough authority to cultivate, promote, and secure the Blessings of Liberty. The balance of authority and individual liberty was understood. Power was confined to that which was enumerated in the Constitution with a certain and meaningful intent for checks and balances.

We must make it a local imperative and movement….of the People…by the People… and for the People. “We, the People” have had enough.

Enough is Enough!

A civil uprising is still not out of the question as “pain” grips the country more each day. Hopefully, our future will reflect that the citizens changed the tide in a peaceful way. This means raising your voice now to your neighbors, family, co-workers, and friends. Be the Captains of your Souls. I pray for another George Washington to appear within the year and lead us.

This is such a great article by Retired General Paul Vallely that I wanted to share it with everyone who reads this blog.

Comments on: "Pledge Now Congress and America by General Paul Vallely" (7)

  1. This was a great article and his timing was good, in the lead up to the election. I think many people think they did their part and voted. That was that. I especially like how he worries that this all may be “unknown” or lost on younger generations. Term limits may sound radical to some but they do not deal with the reasons so many want them.


    • Bull,
      Yes, this is a great article. If you noticed he states that there may still be a civil uprising.
      That seems about where a lot of people are since our reps and senators seem to forget what is in our Constitution.


      • Pepp, I forgot to add, he is a powerful spokesman for it too. I agree. I don’t think anyone could dismiss the possibility of a civil uprising now. I wonder what those odds lookl like? And despite that so many people see it and feel it in the air, our defiantly arrogant reps still march to the same music as if that possiblity doesn’t exist.

        Their answer to unconstitutional chaos is MORE unconstitutional chaos. It is the only answer they give. Similarly, the more we dislike Obama, the more he does what he does. It really is mindboggling, So it is hard to dismiss an uprising. But the minute there is anything like that, there will be a whole lot of elite politicos trying to run out front to lead the parade.


  2. Can’t argue with what the MG said here,but unfortunately,we have a bunch of idiots who think the Constitution is nothing but toilet fodder. They would be called the “inside-the-beltway” bunch. When THEY can wrap their noodle brains around the FACT that the Constituion AS IT IS WRITTEN is the law of the land,NOT what THEY think it SHOULD say,we might get somewhere. Most of us will be meeting Jesus before that will happen.


    • clyde,
      I emailed Senators Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell this article. I told them there is half the population of this country that “KNOW” the Constitution is being trashed. Rand Paul already knows this, but he is only one man in the Senate with dingy harry tabling everything he puts up for amendments to certain bills and he has a great budget which dingy harry also tabled “never to see the light of day” according to dingy harry.


  3. Way Way Way off topic … Question: now that the UN (united nitwits) have voted that Palestine gets a place at the table, and it is, in effect, a soverign country – does that mean Israel should acknowledge this and when the first bomb is lobbed into Israel, they can declare war in response to the Palestinians act of war?


    • Mrs. Al,

      Not really off topic. The Nit Wits are a huge threat to our sovereignty and sadly this president wants the UN in all phases of our life. Hopefully enough people yell bloody murder to their Senators who have to ratify these treaties.

      I would say yes to your question that Israel could finally declare war on them for all the damage they do to Israel. Another unfortunate bit of news is that Hitlery Clinton gave a scathing lecture to Israel “for not giving to the Palestinians. She must have no idea that Israel gives them concrete to build their houses, they take care of their water and give them food. Just a few things they give.

      And what does Israel get back? 4000 missiles lobbed into their country from these ingrates.
